Writing Workshops

Friday Writing Workshops

Beginning in October, the Writing Center will be offering a series of Friday writing workshops for students. These sessions will be given twice each day, from 11 am - 12:30 pm and from 1 - 2:30 pm.  Led by a Writing Center tutor, these sessions will give an overview of the topic, provide hands-on exercises and activities for the participants, and include small and large group discussion.  All workshops will be held in the presentation room in the Writing Center; there is no need to register in advance.  The workshops are as follows:

  • October 6: “Academic Integrity” Workshop
  • October 13: “Using MLA” Workshop
  • October 20: “Using APA” Workshop
  • October 27: “Using CMS” Workshop
  • November 3: “Avoiding Grammar Mistakes” Workshop
  • November 10: “Using MLA” Workshop
  • November 17: “Using APA” Workshop
  • December 1: “Academic Integrity” Workshop

Writing Center Orientation Sessions

In addition, the Writing Center offers class orientation sessions to English 080, 111, and CI (Communication Intensive) courses, along with other writing intensive courses for specific disciplines, in September. Each 30-minute orientation session is led by a tutor in the Writing Center's presentation room.  If you are an instructor and would like to schedule your class for an orientation session or if you would like more information about any of our workshops, contact Helen Raica-Klotz, Writing Center Director at klotz@svsu.edu or (989) 964-6062.

Writing Across Campus (WAC) Workshops

These workshops pair a Writing Center tutor with a faculty member to create a student workshop focused on developing a particular writing skill in a specific discipline. We have partnered with the faculty in Art, Biology, Psychology, and English to offer workshops on a variety of topics, including writing in the sciences, crafting graduate school applications, writing artist statements, and creating poetry.
